Obama’s New Website

| November 9, 2008


The upcoming Obama administration was so eager to claim some form of government legitimacy, they decided to invent a previously unknown federal bureaucracy: The Office of the President-Elect.

Now mind you, every President-Elect has a transition team that does a lot of work to make sure the day they get into office they can start trying to be effective. But never before has anyone made up a seal and everything for it.

Call it hubris. But then Obama has had this on display for some time. Below are pictures of his seat on “O-Force One”, yes it says “President” on it. Also if you recall that seal he started sticking on the front of his podium.


I hope this is just the sign of a complete political rookie, but I do in fact get nervous about any political organization that stresses symbolism and icongraphy this much.
